This is the first post and the opening for this website at the same time. The aim of "246countries" is to create a lasting homage to the nations in all the different countries on earth. It is an appraisal of people who share a common country, history, culture, language or ethnic origin.

The process is very simple: 246 countries (including even overseas territories and collectivities) are shown on an interactive satellite map and are initially blanked out. Each country can be bought by a sponsor as a sign of his esteem for this country. Country pages show rich information, like specific facts on history, geography, demographics, culture and religion.

For the convenience of the sponsor his name and website is shown on the country map - along with the sponsor’s logo on the top of the country page.

This is a one-time chance in internet history. Be a part of it!
